Integration Enables Customers to Create Custom Self-Protecting SAP Fiori Mobile Apps
SAN FRANCISCO - July 29, 2016 - Zimperium, Inc., a leading enterprise mobile threat protection provider, announced today an integration with SAP HANA Cloud Platform, mobile services for SAP Fiori to enable customers to deploy self-protecting SAP Fiori mobile apps with enhanced security. With some simple steps, Zimperium’s zIAP™ Mobile Threat Protection solution can be embedded in custom hybrid SAP Fiori mobile apps, safeguarding sensitive data from the broadest array of mobile network, device and application attacks.
Mobile apps are transforming the way people work. While enterprises are eager to provide access to SAP data via mobile devices in order to boost workforce productivity and increase the effectiveness of traveling employees, the security of sensitive data is a growing concern. That’s why Zimperium and SAP are working together to advance mobile app security.
“Cybercriminals are increasingly turning their attention to mobile devices to get access to a company’s sensitive data,” said Shridhar Mittal, CEO at Zimperium. “Mobile applications that access data from system back ends now benefit from early visibility into these attacks, allowing for remedial actions before major damage is done. The Zimperium zIAP™ solution was built to make it really easy for apps to become self-protecting.”
Zimperium’s zIAP™ In-App Protection solution is available as a plug-in during the SAP Fiori mobile app build process, integrating advanced security into hybrid SAP Fiori apps from the start. The plug-in embeds Zimperium’s Mobile Threat Protection into mobile apps for both iOS and Android and offers threat detection, user alerts with remediation and report forensics.
SAP provides cloud-based services designed to optimize the mobile experience for companies deploying mobile apps including SAP Fiori. SAP HANA Cloud Platform provides a mobile services integration framework offering a no-code option, helping customers with faster delivery of flexible and secure mobile apps that take advantage of tools like Zimperium zIAP™.
“As the industry evolves and threat vectors increase, mobile application security continues to be an ongoing concern for SAP customers,” said Senthil Krishnapillai, VP of development, Digital Experience Services at SAP. “SAP is pleased to be able to help customers build SAP Fiori mobile apps that address the threats that specifically affect mobile devices – through a simple cloud-based integration with Zimperium.”
